Samah's story

Samah is a 30-year-old Lebanese woman. She is single, living with her parents and three siblings who are all working. Her father is trying his best to offer them a suitable life. For this reason, Samah decided to start her own business in order to take some of the responsibilities off of her father. She opened her own CD and recharge card shop in 2005 where she also sells perfumes and some related accessories. In parallel, she has been working as a teacher for the past seven years. Today, she wants to borrow a youth loan of $2,600 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase additional CDs and recharge cards. She notes that this will increase her sales and thus her revenues. In the future, she plans to add cell phones to her shop.
